A friend of my husband’s shared his “Bill Gates the early years” story with me recently. We were just chatting while we waited for my husband to get off a conference call. We eventually wound up at W.E.’s place and met his wife. This comic is an amusing little true story in its own right but it’s even better if you’ve actually met J.E. She takes absolutely no crap off of ANYBODY!! This comic is published with their permission. My own Bill Gates story happened somewhat later in time, and would not make a very good comic. I proxied for my sick boss at a fairly pointless lunch meeting once where Bill Gates was present. I remember thinking, money or not, I’ll bet it will be a while before that chap lands a female. And I was right. But obviously not comic material.
